On the verge of her twentieth birthday, Vivien’s worries are those of a typical young woman: doing well in college, gaining more independence, and maybe managing to show Brad, her classmate and sometimes jogging partner, that she wouldn’t mind taking their burgeoning relationship to a different level.
Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Vivien stumbles into a knife fight, watches a man die in front of her, and soon listens, stunned, as Brad and his brother Aedan tell her a story of magic, vampires and a murderous ruler intent on killing a princess in hiding – a tale in which she is the princess and heir to a realm she didn’t know existed.
Vivien’s first instinct is to refuse to believe this incredible tale, even if it comes from a man she is attracted to. But when her self-proclaimed bodyguards use magic to take her to a different world, the edges of reality start blurring and Vivien has to figure out who she truly is.
Vivien's life is more than turned upside down on her twentieth birthday. She learns she is from an alternate universe where the paranormal exists. As if that is not enough, she also learns she is heir to a throne.
Twists on the typical Fae/Paranormal/Vampire world that show great imagination by the author. It was nice to not read the same thing again.
While this is the first in the series, I am definitely interested to see where the series will go. Great start!
